I've read the other reviews and I take the point about the guide changing little from previous editions (which I also had) but taken on it's own merits rather than in terms of value if you already own last years, this book remains indispensible imho. Its absolutely true that it can no longer be considered as the definitive guide but when partnered with either the gramophone guide or with use of the review section of one of the music magazines websites it provides a deep review of discs available for any given piece of music and for someone like myself that is just beginning to explore off the heavily beaten track of 100 classics and the like, it is very useful. So on it's own merits a four.
